Hi all I'm new to this but need some help/advice I have a 13 year old with autism and he is stealing things from family and friends I am just wondering if anyone has came across this problem in autism or has any advice it would be much appreciated thankyou
I've just seen this in the Telegraph - the headline is 'Smartphones making children borderline autistic, warns expert'. Having read the article, I think the headline is a bit misleading to say the least.
What do you think?
Hi, I have a daughter with asd who will be 9 this year. She has become aware that she is different to other children and is desperate to fit it. We have always talked to her about her autism and tried to focus on the strengths that it has given her as well as letting her know that it is why she struggles sometimes. She has been making statements that suggest to me she confused about her autism, I've tried getting her books aimed at children to help but if anything it seems worse.
Feeling terrible this morning, back to school and problems. My 10 year old didn't want to go into school, the SENCO ushered him through the gate even though he was desperate not to go inside and was nearly in tears. He said it wasn't going to school that was bothering him but sore legs, sore tummy, feel sick etc which I'm presuming are symptoms of anxiety about school.
I meant to add this to my previous post!
Any advice would be great.
My younger son aged four has problems with physical contact with people who doesn't know well. Due to this I am having great problems getting his hair cut. I tried the hair dressers once and never again. He had the worst tantrum kicking her and eventually fell on the floor so we gave up! That was about 3 months ago and he now looks like a scare crow!
Any tips or ideas that may help?
Sadly recently Glen had to be sectioned for a second time, his behaviour had deriorated over the last few months with him being extremely violent to staff and himself and he also isolated himself in his room. He is slightly improving in hospital but is still isolating himself in his room, however staff are getting him to the dining room for meals, he was having all his meals in his room at the care home. The care home manager and her staff have been working with staff at the hospital since Glen was admitted. I am going to visit him tomorrow.
Any tips on how to get him to stop? It's to the point that we can't cuddle anymore because he never stops and I can't handle that noise for even a second Please help!
